Genetic manipulation of urate alters neurodegeneration in mouse model of Parkinson's disease

Investigators report that mice with a genetic mutation increasing urate levels were protected against the kind of neurodegeneration that underlies Parkinson's disease, while the damage was worse in animals with abnormally low urate. Their findings add further support to the possibility that increasing levels of urate may protect against Parkinson's disease.
